Morning Will.

Not going to make it, just because I would eat it all in one setting.  Not going to happen

Good morning, Will... sounds yummy. These are an Ohio specialty, I believe, in honor of the Buckeye State.

Hello Will - from reading your post title, I kept thinking there might be an Ohio theme but I can't seem to find it.  They do sound quite delicious and relatively easy to make.

That sounds like a delicious treat for sure and if I saw them on a plate in front of me, I would have a hard time resisting, haha.

Hi Will- this looks easy and I know that if I made them, Larry would eat them in one day.
